An ex-boyfriend of Anna Nicole Smith who is serving a six-year sentence for making criminal threats against her wants a piece of her inheritance, according to documents filed with Los Angeles Superior Court.
Mark Hatten, who lists his current address as the Pleasant Valley State Prison in Coalinga, dated Smith in 2000 but was later found guilty of threatening her with a knife and assaulting one of her neighbors. He was acquitted of stalking her.
He filed his claim Wednesday in Superior Court.
Repeated calls Friday to his representatives were not returned.
Hatten’s Web site says he is writing a memoir entitled “Hollywood Bad Boy: Sex, Drugs, and Anna Nicole.”
The reality TV star and former Playboy Playmate of the Year had fought Marshall’s family over his estimated $500 million fortune from his death until her own death earlier this year.
Smith, 39, died in Florida on Feb. 8 of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.
